Performance draws on power of water
The Department of Theatre Arts and Dance at SSU presents an outdoor performance of “Bad Penny,” originally written for performance in New York City’s Central Park.
The one-act play is part of a campus-wide project called “Water Works,” which includes fine arts and academics that draw on the theme of inland water flow.
Because “Bad Penny” is about the mythic and metaphorical power of water, this site-specific performance is presented at University Lake.
“Playwright Mac Wellman is a master explorer of drama of the mundane and its intersection with the bizarre and unexpected aspects of human nature,” says Director Judy Navas.
12 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10
5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13
11 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 14
Admission is free.
Sunday includes a 15-minute pre-show of “A Little Tea and Apathy,” featuring about 20 dancers performing while drenched in slip, or liquefied clay.
Located at the University Lake near the Art Building, 1801 E. Cotati Ave.
